      ‘Not to be missed…’

     ‘It’s going to be so magical…’

     ‘You have to see them to believe them!’    


    Billed as the largest festival of its kind ever presented outside of China, Global Winter Wonderland is Silicon Valley’s family event of the holiday season. View spectacular, giant, eco-friendly lanterns that have toured the globe and made their way to Santa Clara, California. The illuminations represent some of the world’s greatest architectural achievements, including the Statue of Liberty, Egyptian Pyramids, and the UK London Bridge.

    Silicon Valley Global Winter WonderlandCrafted from recycled materials such as beverage cans, bottle caps, CDs, porcelain dishes and metal flatware, and designed by the same team of engineers who built lanterns for the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing, the displays promise to be breathtaking.
